Syrian Fighters Launch Five Rockets at the Golan Heights

The terrorists are getting restless north of the border.

Syrian rebels or forces loyal to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad attacked the Golan Heights with five rockets overnight, hours after at least two rockets from Lebanon exploded in northwestern Israel.

Six people suffered light injuries or shock in the attacks from Lebanon, and no one was injured in the rocket explosions in the Golan Heights, where sirens warned residents of incoming missiles approximately an hour and a half after midnight. All of the rockets exploded in open areas although some of them hit dangerously close to communities.

Israel holds Assad as responsible for attacks from Syria.

The attacks are not necessarily a sign that Israel is facing a second war simultaneous with the Hamas’ “Operation Suicide Wish.” The rocket attacks may have come from Palestinian terrorists or a rogue terrorist cell.

If Assad’s forces, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Hezbollah or any other terrorist organization is trying to lull Israel into a war north of the border, it might be just what the world needs because Israel. If Israel has a need to defend itself from the Syrian army or rebel terrorists, it is the only country with the motivation and capability to teach the same lesson Hamas is learning.

It would be interesting to hear the world’s reaction if the Israel Air Force would wipe out a few hundreds terrorists and dozens of civilians caught in crossfire, considering that Assad’s forces and rebel terrorists have murdered more than 150,000 civilians.

Previous to last night’s rocket attacks from Syria, the Golan Heights has been an occasional target for rocket fire and mortar shells, often drawing IDF artillery fire in return.

The Lebanese army and Hezbollah seem to be more interested in preserving quiet on their side of the border, and the rare rocket attacks from southern Lebanon the past couple of months have been ascribed to rogue Palestinian Authority terrorists.

Meanwhile, Hamas continues to attacks southern Israel. The funeral for four-year-old Daniel Tregerman, killed by a mortar shell Friday night, will be held Sunday.

Gaza rockets also have caused moderate to serious injuries to several people in the south and have hit buildings, including a synagogue in Ashdod, but Hamas overall has failed to cause widespread damage and casualties while it is depleting its resources.

The IDF estimates that Hamas retains approximately 25 percent of its rocket stockpile. That works out to 2,000 rockets and missiles, more or less, enough to cause lethal damage, but so far, the Iron Dine anti-missile system and a lot of help from above have made all but mockery of Hamas attacks, despite the deaths of four civilians.
